Desperation and love are the central themes of Frozen River.To get the money for a decent home for her children, a woman gets involved in an immigrant smuggling racket from Canada to the US. The border route is over a frozen river which is dangerous and unpredictable. The turn of events over that Christmas Eve are frightening and heartwarming. The final act has suspense, drama and a simple joy. Well acted, well written, well done, well worth seeing.
